Cannot connect QEMU guest os with vncviewer

The question is as follows.

harry@debian:~/workshop1/qemu_test/version1/test$ qemu-system-x86_64 -hda qcow2.img -cdrom domU-x86_64-FS.img -boot d -m 1024
VNC server running on `::1:5900'

harry@debian:~/workshop1/qemu_test/version1/test$ vncviewer 127.0.0.1:1
vncviewer: ConnectToTcpAddr: connect: Connection refused
Unable to connect to VNC server

Solution (add -vnc parameter for qemu-system-x86_64):

harry@debian:~/workshop1/qemu_test/version1/test$ qemu-system-x86_64 -hda qcow2.img -cdrom domU-x86_64-FS.img -boot d -m 1024 -vnc 127.0.0.1:2

-vnc display[,option[,option[,…]]]

Normally, QEMU uses SDL to display the VGA output. With this option, you can have QEMU listen on VNC display display and redirect the VGA display over the VNC session.

I guess this is the reason.
